So, I've been reading some people's blogs for a while now, and I think it's a really good idea. So, I thought to myself, why don't I start doing it? This blog is meant to reflect mostly on my training, but why not my life as well?
I've just officially signed up for the Musselman Half-iron distance! I'm stoked and my training the last week shows it. I'm a little sore but craving more. For those who don't know, I'm pretty much completely recovered from laser eye surgery! I can see!!!!! It's incredible. I've been waiting to get this surgery for a couple years now. No more contacts or eye glasses for me! Not only will this improve my overall life experience, but just imagining racing without contacts is incredible!
Yesterday, some buddies and I watched the 2003 Tour De France while riding for a nice 2 hour session. Training rides are pretty lame, but watching Lance for 2 hours was way better than staring at a wall. It looks like Salem (my cat who thinks he's a dog) enjoys trainer rides.
I've definitely been having the winter time blues. It's a lot sunnier here than Buffalo (I live in Wappingers Falls, NY), yet it still gets pretty cold. Kaitlyn got me a SAD sun box, which really brightens my mornings (sun salutations before work without the actual sun just weren't the same!).Also,I've been able to capture some pretty nice photos of the ice.
